selectInput doesn't like typing things twice

Try a basic selectInput() widget with a drop down list of choices, say Type the first few characters of anything, add a space then type it again, say "Nor Nor". Both selectInput() or selectizeInput() then refuse to display the typed characters in subsequent searches. This might happen because the user made a typo or the choices contain repeated words, like the band "Tom Tom Club."

First time typing "Nor":

Type "Nor Nor":

Fresh search and just type "Nor":

I'll omit the reprex becuase the Shiny Gallery examples demonstrate this behavior.

Is this a known bug (feature?) and is there a workaround? Thanks.
